Default RCAF to Acquire Airbus C295 for Search and Rescue Operations

Mock up demo graphics from Airbus' website:


The DHC-5 Buffalo and older model C-130 Hercules aircraft currently in use with Search & Rescue squadrons in Canada will be replaced by the Airbus C295. The Liberal Government of Canada is expected to make the official announcement on Thursday. The RCAF expects all aircraft to be delivered by 2023.

Here are some artist renditions of an RCAF C295:

This one is quite detailed, but lacks national markings and features C295 logos on the tail:


This one has the curious addition of a 1958 & prior fin flash, but with the more modern RCAF roundel. I suspect this will be closer to the final livery, but with the current Canadian flag on the tail:

I’m liking the RCAF livery on this bird. Apparently, the RCAF name for the new plane will be announced next month. I’m fond of Searchy McSearch Face.
